New Idea for Vacant Historic Train Depot

Posted By on Mon, Oct 22, 2007 at 1:08 PM

I just received an e-mail from Hotel Congress asking people to e-mail the City Council. Hotel Congress wants to open a neighborhood market and eatery where Central Bistro failed.

That sounds like a good idea to me, because there is no neighborhood market downtown. The train depot has a parking lot which is a necessity for a neighborhood market. And the owners of Hotel Congress (Richard and Shana Oseran) certainly are experienced business owners, unlike the previous proprietors of Central Bistro who failed to create a buzz and were handed the business on a silver platter including heavy subsidies—and still failed.

If you support this idea, please e-mail City Council ASAP. For all we know, they may have some other prospects in mind. Last time, their decision was not made on history and business accumen. At least get someone in there who has a following and experience as successful business owners.
